The nose is very alcoholic, very typical and anonymous over-ripe stewed fruit that is sickeningly sweet. The palate is very berryish, very alcoholic (15,3% abv ) and it burns like whisky when swallowed. Abysmally bad shite. And it costs 33€ here! I've never been so badly ripped off. Utterly unbalanced, very simple - all it has is over-ripe fruit.
I added a drop of water to it (like I do with whiskies) and it improved dramatically. It was still a boring wine with no dimensions, but at least the alcoholic burn was somewhat diminished.
-O-(hoping it would at least have tasted of good whisky instead of a cheap and crappy blended one)
